Patriarche Père & Fils
Didier Lachaux is Patriarche’s production manager. He joined their team as an assistant manager in 1978, and became manager 15 years later in 1993. Lachaux has also always upheld his philosophy in winemaking to make wines that represent the best terroir in Burgundy, and ensure that each wine represents the best of its appellation.
Patriarche Pere et Fils was founded 234 years ago in 1780 by Jean-Baptiste Patriarche. Located in the famous town of Beaune in the heart of Burgundy, Patriarche has grown from being a traditional Burgundy house to one of France’s largest producers and merchants, or “negociant”. It offers wines from every single Burgundy appellation, working with growers whom they have nurtured partnerships for many years. Patriarche is based in the former Visitandines convent in the centre of Beaune, and its finest assets are arguably its 17th century vaulted cellars, some of the most extensive “caves” in Burgundy, that run for several kilometres underneath the actual streets of the town. In these vaulted, labyrinth-esque galleries millions of bottles are either stored or aged in barrels, tuns and tanks.
